Taxi Driver All Smiles Before Going To Jail For Fraud (Photos)


You would expect a convict to show remorse while posing for crime profiling. Not for Michael Lawal who just bagged three months’ jail term for internet fraud.

In his photo shared by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Lawal looked happy as the commission paraded him — before he was sentenced to jail for the crime.

He was convicted by the Oyo state high court yesterday after being charged for obtaining money by false pretense.

The commission said he pleaded guilty to the charge during his arraignment.

The charge read: “That you, Michael Tosin Lawal ‘M’ sometimes in the year 2020, in Ibadan Oyo State, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud obtained Gift Cards from one Trevor, a white male by falsely representing to him that you are a white female by the name Cyndy Tyler from the United States of America, which pretence you knew to be false.”

M. A. Odegbola, the judge, ordered the convict to restitute the sum of $50 to his victim through the EFCC and forfeit items recovered from him to the federal government.
